Some People Climb Up
A wilderness of tranquility, the lungs of the city, a home, a refuge, a playground. Woodlands evoke senses, memories and emotions for all of us.
Sylvia Rimat takes us on a playful, thought-provoking and deeply human audio-walk, exploring our connectivity with the woodland around us. Equipped with audio devices and headphones, you will be guided through a forest to experience it through all your senses.
Some People Climb Up is also an encounter with the metaphorical forest in our brain. It draws on neuroscience, the intricate fungal networks between trees, plant signalling, symbology and our own personal stories related to the woods to create an original performance. The work taps into climate emergency, grief and notions of care beyond the human species.
Informed by personal stories drawn from workshops held with year 8 -10 students at Bridge Learning Campus in Hartcliffe & participants of the Knowle West Walking Groups, from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in Bristol.
Based on an original concept created with Cat Jones.
